Embsay Research Group

The Embsay Research Group is a small but dedicated team of UWHG members (some of who live in Embsay) who have set themselves the immense task of researching the history of the township of Embsay-with-blog-0418_smlEastby. This “microhistory” project grew out of UWHG’s Whitfield Syke project of 2010-12. The group had been initially formed to investigate documentary sources for the history of the mill whose remains now stand on the northern shore of Embsay Reservoir, near Skipton, and extend onto the fringes of Embsay Moor above.

Although the UWHG formal report on the Whitfield Syke Mill has now been published, the search for the history of Whitfield Syke Mill proved addictive, and turned up so many interesting historical sources that it was decided the documentary research team should continue their work.
